Kanye West has made it pretty clear he has no interest in keeping up with the Kardashians — or ever appearing on his wife’s reality show that made her famous (since, as you know, it totally, 100-percent was not the sex tape that made her a household name).
But that’s a little suspicious to us — being that he pretty much considers himself a Kardashian! In a recent interview, the 37-year-old referred to Kris Jenner as his “mom,” Rob Kardashian as his “little brother” and opened up about how his romance with Kim Kardashian cost him friendships!

In the early days of their coupledom, the father-of-one says his friends in the world of high fashion looked down on their relationship because of Kim’s humble beginnings as a reality star.
“But soon as we started dating, fashion people were really opposed to the idea of reality stars,” he explained.
“And all the relationships, the somewhat friends that I had somewhat built up, completely turned their backs on her and me. They already had their back to her, and now they turned it to me. The so-called traction that I was getting in the high-fashion world was completely thrown out the window.”

From there, ‘Ye says he was able to focus his energy on fashion with Kim at his side — and dispelled rumors that he has total control on Kim’s sartorial choices, claiming they have mutual influence on each other.
“I was finally allowed to go to school, where every day I was in my mom [Kris Jenner]’s house, in my little brother’s old room, Rob’s old room, re-tailoring a Céline skirt, re-tailoring a Saint Laurent jacket, re-tailoring a Zara top, re-tailoring Wolford…” Kanye tells Style.com.
“And day by day by day, [Kim and I] learned, we got better. We looked at photographs together and she improved my style, we improved each other.”
